QMF 2011 Social Event

Pre-purchased tickets for Graeme Murphy's Rome and Juliet at the Sydney Opera House are available to QMF Delegates please secure your booking through your registration form.

Romeo & Juliet is perhaps the greatest love story ever told – but it hasn’t been told by one of Australia’s greatest storytellers. Until now. Graeme Murphy (Swan Lake, Nutcracker) adds another ballet classic to his list of audacious reinventions with this much-anticipated world premiere. Over 400 years old, the tale of Romeo & Juliet is as timeless as it is heartbreaking. Young passion smoulders at its core, but in this ballet Murphy also tackles the consequences of greed, war, factionalism, and what happens to humanity when love dies. Of course, a grand story demands grand surrounds, and who better to create the costumes than Australian fashion luminary Akira Isogawa. What do they have in store for our two star-crossed lovers?  You’ll have to wait and see. Romeo & Juliet promises to be a masterpiece from first blush to final devastation.
